Our author match feature publication search algorithm is designed to help you quickly find and confirm authorship of your publications on ResearchGate quickly and easily. The ease of this one-click process means mistakes can sometimes be made, so if another researcher has claimed your publication, it is usually the result of an honest mistake.
To resolve this:
1. Go to the publication page by clicking on the publication's title button, which can be found underneath the publication’s title and author(s)
2. Click on the down-arrow to the right of 'Download' and 'Request Feedback' and select ‘Claim authorship’
from the drop-down list
3. Tell us what's happened in the box that appears and, if possible, include links to external services where your work is published
4. Click on the blue ‘Request authorship’ button.
We take erroneous authorship claims very seriously and review each case manually. This can sometimes take a while so please have patience during this process.
